Famed for its baroque architecture and breath-taking Alpine setting, a short break in Salzburg lives long in the memory. A popular ski resort during the winter, and home to the Salzburg Festival in summer, there’s much to see and do here.
With one of the best-preserved Old Towns north of the Alps, Salzburg’s centre was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Must-see sights around the city include the pretty Mirabell Palace and St Peter’s Abbey. When staying at one of our Salzburg Hotels, be sure to embrace Austria’s café culture too – Salzburg is home to the longest serving cafe in Austria.
The setting of The Sound of Music, be sure to take the famous tour of the filming locations – a great chance to see around the city and the wider, rural areas of the State of Salzburg. Also the birthplace of Mozart, check out the houses in which the great Composer was born and lived during his time in the city.
Just across the border from the south of Germany, why not take a day trip to see Munich, Hitler’s residence at The Eagle’s Nest or Bavaria’s Salt Mines?
